Music Fest 2013

0

Hello Creeps.

It’s crunch time! With only two days left to get everything secured and in order, we have to work really hard. Saturday is the day of the music festival! The fundraiser is going to raise funds for The Igloo Parlor. All proceeds go to opening the establishment. Right now we need to do the following:

  • Find Tents for our refreshment table & PA System
  • Get tables ready
  • Finalize workers of the event
  • Get donation boxes

After all this we will see all of our hard work come into play. I can’t wait and hope for a smooth and fun fundraiser.

Music Festival Update

Creeps,

June first is creeping up upon us and I’m hoping that the weather man is incorrect about the weather on that day. 85 degrees with a chance of mild thunderstorms. That would piss me off after all this hard work has been done and we’d have to switch stuff. NO!

I might want to check with the adult center to see if they’ll be our indoor venue just in case. Other than that, I have no idea. The high school would be alright, but looks poor considering its a fundraiser for a local business.

We’ve had an act cancel on us, so we have 2 more band slots available and time working against us! Other than that, bands are all secured. I have to rush Saturday morning to pick up my PA system and rush to the venue.

This is going to be an interesting Saturday and I’m very frustrated at this point because I still haven’t heard from the group that’s supposed to be doing the bake sale table! It’s quite irritating when everything comes down to this one day. One chance at a first impression.

On a great note, my festival is being advertised on BIC: http://www.bicproductions.com/

I appreciate their time in advertising for us! It’s an honor.

I have gotten a lot more confident than I ever was during this whole endeavor. Now, it’s crunch time to take those daydreams into a reality.

I’m pretty happy with how this festival came about and all the struggles with it. It shows that I can tackle the worst situations and become better at what I do! Life is a learning experience!

What I’m looking forward to – not only the festival and the opening of my ice cream shop – but also getting back into music myself! I’ve been saying this for a long time, but this time it’s going to happen!

I’ve already gotten back into doing my vocal warm up practices. I’d really like to get my hands on a bass again and do keyboards again.

Inspirations are all around me. I’ve been working hard for two damn years to create a better life for myself, my boyfriend, and my family. I’d love to see it pay off.

I’m also going to get back into doing the film and album reviews once a week on this blog after the festival. Unsuccessful Entertainment will be back doing videos after the festival as well.

We appreciate all the new follows and subscribers! Thanks for Creepin’!

Fundraising!!

0

It’s been awhile since I could keep track of my blogs because the time is ticking against me and I have a music festival and more to put together in under 2 weeks. I have a meeting with a funding executive tomorrow at four o’clock. I also have to get posters together, finalize my music festival date (the only thing holding me back from success at this point), and more. It’s been a HARD road at this point. Considering the issues that come with a small time frame. At least, I found some great volunteers to help at the festival. We will hold refreshments and more! 

Yesterday, I was put fully in charge of all these aspects. It’s a very hard job, but I do have a great team that makes it all possible! I hate being at a stand still though with this waiting on a date considering I have to get things up and ready to go! 

I’ve made a word press blog for my business as well: http://theiglooparlor.wordpress.com/ For future customers and supporters to keep up with. 

Creeps, I must ask you a question:

  1. What advice can you give me to make this fundraiser a fun attraction aside from music and refreshments?
  2. Should I do some sort of raffle?

If anyone can give a few pointers – That would be great! 🙂

Dissident Overdrive Music Festival & Igloo Merchandise!

Hey Creeps. I’ve been busy trying to obtain my capital for my start up ice cream shop. Go figure, it’s easier to get help once your in business…but NOT to make it happen. -_- Yeah, you heard me! So, here I am, no credit history and managed to obtain a business credit card with a small limit to help me build my credit score. I’m still in search of a co-signer and with tensions high, I need to stay calm and be level headed.

My boyfriend and I have come up with the Dissident Overdrive Music Festival! And I just recently added some merchandise items!

Dark T-Shirts and Merchandise are coming up later this evening. If you’d like to check it out and purchase something as support that would be great! Check here: http://www.cafepress.com/dissidentoverdrivemusicfestival <–Click it or copy/paste.

 

I am currently trying to figure out a way to get open for at least 1 month to show investors that this is a good idea. I’m really looking forward to this hurdle/obstacle to be behind me and be successful in my venture!
